The Cork County Board chairman, vice-chairman, and secretary are confident the Cork premier senior championship is fully compliant with the new 16-team cap voted into rule at Annual Congress. As per the new rule governing county championships, senior and intermediate championships cannot consist of more than 16 teams from 2023 onwards. The county’s eight divisions, along with UCC and CIT, compete in a qualifying section that runs parallel to the county championship, from which one team progresses to the knockout stages of the county championship proper. That gives a total of 22 teams chasing county championship glory. I have no doubt that we are in order with our championship.”Kevin O’Donovan set out the Cork argument as to how their premier senior championship is compliant.
